Happy Last Day of International Clown Week!

7 Aug

Out-of-focus juggling

Today marks the final day of International Clown Week.  In order to celebrate, I broke out an old hobby of mine and tried to juggle.  I learned to juggle about 15 years ago and honed my skills in college.  Ever since, I’ve been lugging around a duffle bag full of juggling equipment from apartment to apartment.  Believe it or not, even after years of inactivity, I was able to start juggling clubs again after just a few tries.  Now getting a good picture of said activity was quite a different story.  First I can juggle, but it’s out of focus.

Club drop + self-timer = disappointment




Next I’m in focus, but I dropped a club just as the camera went off. (Notice the purple shirt to celebrate Purple Heart Day)

Best shot!






Not really in focus, but the best shot I got of actual juggling.  In the interest of science, I was going to try and write a physics explanation of how to juggle, but Jack Kavlan already did!  So that saves me some trouble.
